He thought he was a farmer
But then the angel came.
He called him “Mighty Warrior”
Why, he knew Gideon’s name!
He took his father’s big old ox
And pulled the idol down
They had an awful ruckus
In Gideon’s home town!
Mighty man of Valor,
Put your fleeces out;
God will make it dry or wet,
You’ll know what you’re about!
Many men made soldiers,
But God said, “No!
A bunch of these guys
Will have to go!”
“I don’t make mistakes,
And I want the world to know
That I won the battle
Not you men from below!
Take your soldiers for a drink,
Let a few more go...
Those that lap like dogs,
Well, send those fellows home!
Now sneak into the camp site
Of your enemy...
Get your lanterns ready,
Bugles on key...
Shout “I serve the living God!”
Praise Me now, and sing!
Know you serve a living God
Who can do anything!
